With sunlight streaming in the 
window of the Frost Reading Room, 
and spring "Busting Out All Over," 
these boys do well to keep their noses 
in their books.

To the Alumni 

Hearty thanks to all those 
generous contributors to the 
Alumni Fund listed on pages 15- 
18, also to those who helped 
compile the interesting alumni 
notes beginning on page 18. 

And please don't overlook Mr. 
Wilkie's article on page 8, Bob 
Wesselhoeft's letter on page 7, 
or Koy Nash's account of his 
Russian trip on page 5. 

Alumni Dinners 

The policy of inviting wives 
as well as alumni to attend 
alumni reunions, so popular last 
year, was continued this year 
and met with very satisfactory 

As usual, the season opened 
with the Portland Dinner, held 
again in the Mayfair Room of 
the Lafayette Hotel, on Wed- 
nesday, November 30. Forty- 
four alumni and wives were on 
hand to greet a large delegation 
of faculty and to hear Mr. Wil- 
kie and Mr. Elliott Gordon of 
the Board of Trustees and to 
witness Mr. Sager's illustrated 
lecture on the material growth 
of the Academy from the Little 
Red Schoolhouse to the Frost 
Building, the new hockey rink, 
and the modern plant we now 

One hundred and twenty-four 
alumni and wives and fully half 
the Governor Dummer faculty 
gathered at the Harvard Club 
for the annual Boston Dinner 
on December 7. Mr. Sager re- 
peated his illustrated lecture; 
Pete Sutton came up from New 
York to restore last year's so- 
popular quartet; and Mr. Wilkie 
outlined plans for the bicenten- 
nial celebration in 1962. 

In mid-January Mr. and Mrs. 
Wilkie and Messrs. Sager, 
Stone, and Navins took off for 

the annual Western New York 
trip. On Thursday, January 19, 
they met with an enthusiastic 
group of alumni and parents 
whom Gerry Dietz '35 had as- 
sembled at the University Club 
in Syracuse. Tom Collins '41 and 
Bob Lyle '40 sponsored a simi- 
lar meeting at the Buffalo 
Tennis and Squash Club on the 
following evening. At both meet- 
ings Mr. Wilkie spoke and Mr. 
Sager showed his colored slides. 

On April 24 Mr. and Mrs. 
Wilkie departed for a western 
tour which included stops at 
Dallas, Texas ; and Chicago, Illi- 
nois. In Dallas at the home of 
Mr. and Mrs. Frank E. Austin, 
Jr. they had a most enjoyable 
meeting with 28 alumni and 
friends. In Chicago, where they 
were joined by Mr. Sager, Mr. 
and Mrs. Arlindo S. Cate had 
gathered 24 parents, alumni, 
and wives at the University 
Club for a most enthusiastic re- 

The North Shore Dinner 
again concluded the season. A 
social hour at the Ould New- 
bury Golf Club preceded the 
dinner in the school dining room 
where a capacity crowd heard 
Mr. Wilkie, Mr. Murphy, and 
Web Dann '48 talk about Gov- 
ernor Dummer's present status 
and its future plans. 

Terpsichore Comes Twice 

A winter dance as well as a 
spring dance has now become a 
fixture of the Governor Dum- 
mer schedule. This year the 
winter dance was held on Janu- 
ary 28. Unlike the spring dance, 
it was strictly a one-day affair. 

Chairman Dave Clarke and 
his committee did an excellent 
job. The girls were invited for 
three o'clock. Many of them wit- 
nessed some of the afternoon 

athletic events, and all enjoyed 
dinner in the school dining room 
and dancing to Ken Reeves' or- 

The big social event of the 
year, however, is still the spring 
dance. It was held this year on 
May 8 with Albie Booth head- 
ing a committee which included 
Tony Baumann, Pete Boynton, 
Hap Bliss, Peter Eaton, Tony 
Garland, Ed Kaiser, Steve Saw- 
yer, and Charlie Vaughan. 

As usual the girls arrived on 
Saturday afternoon, watched 
the afternoon games, dined and 
danced in the Phillips Building, 
and were overnight guests of 
the school. 

As usual, they attended the 
Sunday morning chapel service ; 
but this year there was an add- 
ed feature. The girls' departure 
was delayed until 2 :00 so that 
they and their escorts could en- 
joy a mid-day cookout on the 
campus, an innovation which 
was particularly acceptable to 
team members who in other 
years have had so little time 
with their dates on Saturday 

Metered Mail 

Have you noticed? Governor 
Dummer has finally succumbed 
and installed a postage meter. 
Its significance lies not in any 
saving of postage but rather in 
a phenomenal increase in the 
volume of mail emanating from 
the school, — a volume which 
makes the old-fashioned postage 
stamp impractical. 

Admissions correspondence 
and college placement problems 
have added greatly to the neces- 
sary correspondence in recent 
years. The bicentennial celebra- 
tion and Third Century Fund 
will further increase it in the 
near future.

Glee Club Returns To Lang 

The Glee Club sang a six-con- 
cert schedule this year and will 
end with a seventh at Com- 
mencement-time. The Symphony 
Hall concert of the New England 
Private School Music Festival 
was again omitted. New on the 
schedule was a joint concert 
with the Newburyport Choral 
Society on April 23 sponsored 
by St. Paul's Episcopal Church 
of Newburyport as part of the 
celebration of its 250th anni- 

The latter concert became 
nearly a Governor Dummer 
affair since Mr. Stone is Presi- 
dent of the Choral Society and 
Mr. Lispenard B. Phister of the 
Board of Trustees and Miss Syl- 
via B. Lunt of the Academy 
business office are co-chairmen 
of the Anniversary Committee 
of St. Paul's Church. Highlights 
of the concert were choruses 
from La Belle Helene and Ode 
to the Virginian Voyage sung 
by the two groups. The Glee 
Club also contributed Allegri's 
Miserere, God of Our Fathers, 

and choruses from The Sound 
of Music. 

The Walnut Hill and Abbot 
concerts were away. The first 
home concert was scheduled for 
the Alumni Gym on February 
11 with Winsor School as the 
guest singers. At the last mo- 
ment conflict with athletic re- 
quirements made it advisable to 
hold the concert in the Lang 
Gymnasium instead. The more 
intimate atmosphere of the 
smaller hall, its superior acous- 
tic properties, and its proximity 
to the Phillips Building made 
the change so pleasing that it 
was forthwith decided to hold 
all future concerts in Lang. 

Accordingly, the Beaver 
Country Day concert was held 
there on March 3 with equal 
success. The Dana Hall concert 
on April 14, however, was 
moved to the Cobb Room be- 
cause neither school wished to 
invite outside guests. 

A pre-concert dinner and a 
post-concert dance were sched- 
uled for each of the joint 

Former Faculty 

Laurence P. Miller (1946- 
1949) became Headmaster of 
the Gordon School, Providence, 
R. I., last July. He lives with 
his wife and three children at 
193 Brown Street, Providence. 

William E. Traver (1946- 
1952) visited school recently 
with his wife and four of their 
five children. Not brought along 
on the trip were their two dogs, 
one hamster, four turtles, one 
bird, and three fish ! Bill is with 
the Citizens Savings Bank in 
Barrington, R. I. 

Thomas G. Cleveland (1949- 
1951) is back in Alaska. From 
one of his letters, printed in 
The Church Militant, we learn 
that he is now at St. Barthol- 
omew's Church of Palmer, 

Palmer, Tom reports, is a vil- 
lage of 1,200 located some fifty 
miles north of Anchorage in the 
famed Matanuska Valley, ". . . 
the leading agricultural area of 
Alaska . . . gorgeous with high 
mountains on three sides . . . 
the place where 50-pound cab- 
bages are grown." 

Tom, Charlotte, four children, 
and a German Shepherd dog 
made the trip from Taunton to 
Alaska by car, logging 5,500 
miles in 19 days of driving. 

Preston W. Smith, who 
taught here in 1930-31, is Asso- 
ciate Professor of Math at St. 
Lawrence University. 

Lyman B. Tobin, an English 
teacher at Governor Dummer in 
1913-14, died at his home in 
Stanton, Virginia, on February 
6, 1961. After leaving Governor 
Dummer, Mr. Tobin became 
Headmaster of the Browning 
School in New York City. 
Among his pupils were John D. 
Rockefeller, 3d and Christian A. 

From Our Moscow 


On Dec. 17, 1960, The Cornell 
University Glee Club left the 
country for an extended singing 
tour of the Soviet Union and 
London, England. Included in 
the group of 79 men was Roy 
C. Nash, G.D.A. '59. Following 
is an account of some of his ob- 
servations on the trip written 
specifically for The Archon. 

"After a long cross- Atlantic 
flight, a day's rest in Amster- 
dam, and a very pleasant two- 
day stopover at Copenhagen, we 
finally landed in Russia. Since 
the airport was a good distance 
from Moscow, we had an excel- 
lent opportunity to view the 
countryside on our way to the 
hotel. Most of the land was un- 
developed, and as far as one 
could see, there were nothing 
but massive pines. Here and 
there a group of small wooden 
shacks would pop up, most of 
them resembling the shanty 
towns that used to be so preva- 
lent near the railroads in our 
own country. Another obvious 
difference was the dearth of 
automobiles, billboards, and gas- 
oline stations. As a matter of 
fact we never did see a gas sta- 
tion and wondered just where 
the buses, trucks and few cars 
got their fuel. We were in for 
a shock when we reached our 
'hotel'. This building was a 
brick structure only five years 
old, but looking very much old- 

er. A brief listing of its assets 
will suffice to say how we en- 
joyed our stay at the hotel 
Tourist. There were no private 
baths, no running hot water, no 
coat hangers, no toilet paper, 
one shower in the whole build- 
ing, and one small, unclean din- 
ing room where we had to eat 
in shifts. Our breakfast consist- 
ed of half-cooked eggs or mushy 
rice pudding, tea, sugar cubes 
which refused to dissolve, borsch 
which was somehow made to 
divide into three layers — one 
of the soup, the second of a 
creamy-type liquid, and the 
third which most of us swore 
was pure grease. We just ate 
enough to subsist, and it amazed 
our guides to see us rush to the 
ice cream stand whenever we 
happened to spot one. 

"At our first concert we saw 
how friendly most of the Rus- 
sian students are and how in- 
terested they are in the U. S. A. 
In Russia when a performance 
is appreciated the audience will 
clap rhythmically as is done at 
our baseball games to spur on 
the home team. This signifies 
that they enjoyed the particular 
song very much and wish us to 
sing it over again. It was very 
satisfying to hear that, and ev- 
erywhere we went both in Mos- 
cow and in Leningrad we were 
well received. At receptions af- 
terward questions about our- 
selves, our university, our 
homes, our families, our fathers' 
jobs, unemployment, and segre- 
gation were most frequently 
asked. I might add that a great 
number of the students speak 
English and it is as popular over 
there as French or Spanish is in 
our schools. 

"In spite of what one hears 
to the contrary, most of the 
people love their country very 
much and are proud of what 
Communism has done for it. 
Education is free for all who 
want it from the first grade on. 
Conditions still are poor in hous- 
ing and appliances, but are a 
lot better than when the Czar- 
ists were in power. The people 
realize that they do not have all 
the comforts we do, although 
some would not believe that 
most of us have automobiles and 

sometimes a summer home. 
They are content to be without 
these while the country builds 
itself up in the 'more important 

"Russia is now progressing at 
an amazing rate : there is con- 
struction going on everywhere, 
the educational process is being 
speeded up, and the degree of 
patriotism is fantastic. Women 
don't look for a husband, they 
look for a job to help the state. 
Apparent everywhere in dis- 
plays, exhibitions, and maga- 
zines are new examples of Rus- 
sian progress. What they live 
for is to catch up to the United 
States. They still have a long 
way to go to do so, but are con- 
tent to keep on trying till they 
reach their goal. 

"Our trip ended after flying 
to London and singing in West- 
minster Abbey and for The Roy- 
al Society of Musicians. It had 
been tiring, but there was no 
one who could say that he had 
not learned something valuable 
along the way." 

School Catalog 

For the first time in many 
years, Governor Dummer pub- 
lished a school catalog in the 
summer of 1960. Its appearance 
inspired several friends and 
neighbors to donate copies of 
ancient catalogs to add to our 
archives. Some of them are most 
enlightening about the relatively 
uncomplicated boarding school 
life of one hundred years ago. 

Almost any of you could have 
gained ready admission during 
the Civil War years. All you 
had to do was to "possess a good 
moral character; to be at least 
ten years of age; to be able to 
read fluently, and spell the more 
common English words;" and 
to have a knowledge of "the 
fundamental principles of Arith- 
metic, Geography and English 

But could you have stayed in? 
The catalog emphasizes by ital- 
ics that the tuition charge of 
$7.00 per term was "payable 
each term in advance" and that 
the weekly charge of $4.00 for 
board and room was "exclusive 
of wood and lights." Further- 

more, "the use of fire-arms and 
intoxicating liquors, games of 
chance and profane swearing, 
are strictly forbidden," and 
"special attention is given to the 
deportment and habits of the 
pupils, and the inculcation of 
correct moral principles is re- 
garded as an object of primary 
importance. The pupils are re- 
quired to maintain the respect- 
ful and courteous bearing of 
gentlemen in their intercourse 
with each other and their teach- 
er. The Bible is made a book of 
daily study, and is regarded as 
the onlv infallible guide to 

Pretty tough, you think? Not 
at all, for "the retirement of the 
place, and its freedom from 
stores, taverns and other places 
of resort, are great aids in the 
moral cultivation of the pupils." 

And when you left would you 
have taken a diploma with you? 
Not unless you had a thorough 
knowledge of Caesar, Cicero, 
and Sallust, of the Anabasis and 
Homer (in the original Latin 
and Greek naturally), — nor 
unless you were proficient in 
Latin and Greek prose composi- 
tion and had found time to ac- 
quire a mastery of Algebra and 

But then you were allowed 
three full years to meet these 
simple requirements, full, that 
is, except for a generous sum- 
mer vacation lasting all the time 
from Commencement on June 
30 to the beginning of the fall 
term on August 18. 

By and large, we think you're

Always Something New 

The school maintenance staff 
is currently busily converting 
the south half of the basement 
of the big barn beside the road 
to Whipple Field into a com- 
modious locker room. 

With the Frost Hockey Rink 
in operation, it soon became ob- 
vious that lockers, showers, and 
dressing room space in that area 
are needed to supplement those 
in the Alumni Gymnasium. At 
one time it was thought they 

could be provided in the equip- 
ment house at the rink ; but that 
plan was abandoned, partially 
because of excessive cost and 
partially because locker rooms 
so located would not be conven- 
ient for the use of the soccer 
teams in the fall or for the J.V. 
baseball or lacrosse teams who 
might also use them in the 
spring term. 

By utilizing the space in the 
big barn it will be possible to 
provide a 25-locker home team 
room, a spacious visiting team 
room, a large shower room and 
an entry hall large enough to ac- 
commodate skate benches where 
casual skaters can put on and 
remove their skates in comfort. 
The visiting team room is pro- 
vided with separate facilities 
which will serve as a powder 
room for ladies when the expect- 
ed skating club is using the rink. 

Inclement weather and deep 
frost somewhat delayed the 
start of this project, but it is 
expected that it can be complet- 
ed by the beginning of the soccer 

Guest Speakers 

Enlighten Students 

A number of speakers have 
been guests of the school this 
year and have covered a variety 
of topics, giving the students 
additional food for thought. 

On October 14, Mr. Augustus 
P. Means, candidate for Lieuten- 
ant-Governor of Massachusetts, 
spoke on the Republican Party, 
and on November 1 Mr. Fred- 
erick S. Allis of the Phillips 
Academy history department 
spoke on the Democratic Party. 

On October 28 Mr. Reno S. 
Harp, 3d, Assistant Attorney- 
General for the Commonwealth 
of Virginia, spoke on "Integra- 

First-hand observations on 
the state of Russia and its 
people were described by Mr. 
Graham Down of the Lawrence- 
ville School history department 
on January 13. 

On April 13 Mr. Victor Hag- 
gard, Headmaster of The Old 
Malthouse, an English prepara- 
tory school at Dorset, England, 

spoke on "Education and All 

Mr. Joseph L. Supple of the 
Radio Corporation of America 
in Boston was the speaker on 
April 21 and described "Evolu- 
tion of Data Processing." 

On April 28 Professor Solon 
Robinson of Smith College, fa- 
ther of Geof '61, gave a piano 
concert in the Cobb Room and 
accompanied his music by some 
commentary on the selections 

Special Lectures for 
History Students 

The Governor Dummer his- 
tory department instituted a 
series of five lectures, given by 
faculty and guest speakers, for 
the members of the United 
States history classes. 

Speakers included Mr. Wil- 
liams, Mr. Wilkie, Mr. Sperry, 
Mr. Henry M. Bragdon, head of 
the Phillips Exeter history de- 
partment, and Mr. Frederick S. 
Allis of the Phillips Academy 
history department. 

The Student Viewpoint 

( An invited contribution by 
Peter Boynton '61 ) 

Governor Dummer is now in 
the second year of a new admin- 
istration — a "new frontier" 
after a long and very capable 
administration, which in its 
earlier days was in itself a "new 
frontier." Very much like the 
first few weeks of our new na- 
tional administration, the one 
here at Governor Dummer was 
accepted in its first few months 
with very little criticism. (It 
should be noted right now that 
Governor Dummer students, like 
those of any school, can be most 
critical observers. ) However, 
towards the end of the first year 
and the beginning of this, the 
second one, we students have 
noted the policies and actions of 
our new Headmaster in a more 
critical light. "Critical" in this 
case does not necessarily have 
a bad connotation, but rather it 
implies that we have examined 
more closely what goes on so as 
to be able to decide how it will 
relate to us and to the institu- 
tion. We have not accepted un- 


Seated on the settee in the Perry Room are Sam Gwynne '47 and John Gardner '47,

then; in fact, he is now President of the United States. 

questioning Mr. Wilkie's plans 
for the future ; we have scrutin- 
ized these plans to see for our- 
selves what they will imply for 
future classes. Take, for in- 
stance, the question of a chapel 
on campus. At the outset the 
idea of a chapel was met by 
many with the aversion typical 
of any boy who has served his 
time in Sunday school and now 
feels he can go to church when 
and if he pleases. But as the 
school has become more accus- 
tomed to the idea, several ad- 
vantages have been found, many 
of which are practical, such as 
the elimination of a long bus 
ride. But there are others which 
tend away from the practical, 
such as the spiritual ties which 
can be formed by attending 
church in a body. There is little 
doubt that, if we students were 
to decide the matter, a chapel 
would soon be a feature of our 

Intellectual stimulation is an- 
other problem we have been con- 
cerned with. By this I mean not 
the idea of "booking" but the 
contacting of the minds of fel- 

low students and older men to 
discuss the knowledge we have 
acquired. There is little doubt 
but that the next few years will 
see the growth of this ger- 
minating seed, which will flower 
into clubs, discussion groups, 
and a clamor for more contact 
with men outside the school so 
as to broaden a somewhat lim- 
ited outlook. The administration 
has begun actively to stimulate 
the growth of this intellectual- 
ity; and the guest speakers, 
tours, and debates have found 
eager audiences and partici- 

This is all a pretty rosy pic- 
ture, but taken as a whole, such 
is the outlook. It is the minority 
who stand off and gripe about 
"the way things are done around 
here," instead of taking the 
initiative to do something to 
change the situation. Of course, 
often these people are heard be- 
cause they shout the loudest — 
that doesn't mean they repre- 
sent the most. One of the most 
promising signs as to the situa* 
tion here at school is that many 
people aren't listening to this 

minority as attentively as they 

You alumni have been 
through this school. What has 
been said may seem trite be- 
cause perhaps you have seen 
many times before all that has 
been described. But isn't it true 
that the fact that this situation 
keeps recurring is one of the 
best indications that this school 
is accomplishing its task? 

Early Sports 

The Archon is grateful to 
Robert Wesselhoeft of the Class 
of 1901 for the following letter

It is a valuable contribution to

it will inspire others to make 
similar ones.

Governor Dummer Academy 
South Byfield, Massachusetts 

"A probably forgotten chap- 
ter of Academy history was 
brought to mind recently. When 
driving along the Old Newbury- 
port Turnpike I turned into the 
Academy grounds to freshen 
happy memories, and then went 
out along the road between the 
old football field and the campus, 
back to the Turnpike. Before me 
rose an imposing driveway to 
the Newbury Country Club with 
a splendid golf course and im- 
pressive buildings. 

"The driveway marks the spot 
where sixty-four years ago, to- 
gether with Guy Myers of Ash- 
land, Ohio, Eric Martin of Den- 
ver, Greisser Patterson and Mit- 
chell of Cleveland, and Eddie 
Montgomery of Maiden, Mass., 
I founded the Quessicunquen 
Golf Club for Academy scholars. 
The club was named for the 
Quessicunquen Tribe of Indians 
who were reputed to have in- 
habited the region in pre-Revo- 
lutionary times. 

"It was a long time ago, in 
the early days of golf in Amer- 
ica when Thorpe, the son-in-law 
of Henry Wadsworth Longfel- 
low, had just become Amateur 
champion of the United States, 
and before the hey-dey of the 
great professionals. If my mem-

Evaluation Committee Visit 

By Valleau Jfilkie. Jr. 

The New England Associa- 
tion of Colleges and Secondary 
Schools adopted a policy some 
years ago, calling for an evalu- 
ation of all member colleges and 
schools within a ten-year period. 
Each member institution was 
to be visited by a committee 
appointed by the Association 
and, on the basis of the report 
filed by the committee, individ- 
ual colleges and schools would 

be approved for continued mem- 
bership in good standing, or 
disapproved if they did not meet 
the standards set forth. Last 
fall it became our turn to re- 
ceive such an evaluation com- 
mittee at Governor Dummer. 

Although the avowed purpose 
of this program is to provide 
the Association with informa- 
tion about its members, of equal 
importance is the opportunity 
for a school such as ours to re- 
ceive the benefit of a relative- 
ly objective opinion of our pro- 

gram from members of other 
faculties. Particularly at this 
time, when Governor Dummer 
has been carrying on a study 
of its own program in prepara- 
tion for its third century of 
service, the visit of an evalua- 
tion committee was welcomed 
as one more means of weigh- 
ing the merits and demerits, 
the strengths and weaknesses, 
of the Academy. 

The committee which arrived 
on campus on Sunday, October 
9, consisted of Mr. Paul Wright, 
senior master at Groton, chair- 
man; Mr. William R. Jones, 
head of the Modern Language 
Department at Exeter; and Mr. 
Albert Thorndike, head of the 
Science Department at Milton. 
During the summer Mr. Wright 
and I had tentatively assigned 
each member to investigate cer- 
tain departments and activities 
and had worked out a back- 
breaking schedule which kept 
the committee on the run from 
8:00 a. m. until 11:00 p. m. for 
the two and a half days they 
were on campus. They visited 
many classes, talked with de- 
partment heads, studied the op- 
erations of the Director of Ad- 
missions, Director of Studies, 
and Business Manager. They 
toured the entire plant and also 
talked with many groups of 
masters and students. Three 
thoroughly weary gentlemen 
wended their way home late 
Tuesday in possession of an im- 
mense store of varied facts and 
impressions of the school which 
would shortly become organized 
into a final report. 

I am pleased to say that, in 
general, the committee's report 
was a favorable one, but there 
were certain areas of our oper- 
ation about which critical com- 
ment was quite properly made. 
Among these areas were two of 
particular importance to the fu- 
ture development of the Acade- 
my. In the first place, it was 
noted that our faculty, as com- 
pared to those of similar schools, 
tends to be overworked and un- 
derpaid, despite the efforts that 
have been made over the years 
to rectify this situation. The 
fact that our men have too many 
varied duties to perform pre- 


Mrs. Thurlow enjoys her Monday mornings. 

sents a problem because the in- 
dividual teacher often finds too 
little time to devote to the sort 
of academic preparation which 
is essential for excellent teach- 
ing. This is not to say that the 
instruction offered is inadequate, 
but rather that it would become 
yet more exciting and meaning- 
ful if our faculty had a bit more 
time for academic endeavors. 
The answer to this problem lies 
partly in placing increased re- 
sponsibility upon our older stu- 
dents who can and should shoul- 
der some of the burdens now 
carried by the faculty, and part- 
ly in some enlargement of the 
faculty. Both the increase in 
numbers of faculty members 
and the continued effort to im- 
prove the salary scale depend 
to a considerable degree upon 
our financial strength during 
the coming years. 

A second factor upon which 
the committee dwelt at some 
length was the limited oppor- 
tunities which we offer in the 
area of extracurricular activi- 
ties. Although we can be proud 

of our Glee Club, our Debating 
Club, and our publications, there 
is great need for an instrumen- 
tal-music program, including a 
school orchestra; an art pro- 
gram of greater magnitude and 
quality than our current make- 
shift arrangements; and a dra- 
matic organization. 

The current curriculum and 
the proposed changes and addi- 
tions were heartily endorsed by 
the committee. They strongly 
approved the religious program 
now under development. They 
were impressed by all our ath- 
letic department is accomplish- 
ing. And finally they commented 
favorably on the caliber of fac- 
ulty and student body. In gen- 
eral, the report was encourag- 
ing, and where it tended to 
point up soft spots, these were 
problems which we have recog- 
nized and sought to provide for 
in the Program for Governor 
Dummer about which many of 
you have already heard. 

The visit of the committee 
was of great value to us. It put 
us on our mettle before the 

searching gaze of our visitors ; 
it showed to us some problems 
that others felt we must face; 
and it tended to confirm our de- 
cisions and plans for the devel- 
opment of the Academy during 
the coming years. 

Portable Paperbacks 

Visitors to the Governor Dum- 
mer library on Mondays are 
sometimes surprised to find in 
the reading room a large display 
of paper-backed books in drug- 
store-style metal stacks mount- 
ed on a moveable cart. 

The paperbacks, the stacks, 
and the cart represent a dream 
of Mrs. Thurlow, our indefati- 
gable librarian, who feels that 
"the library is the logical place 
to sell books, as ownership of 
books as well as borrowing 
books from library shelves are 
kindred habits and should be 
simultaneously encouraged." 

Mrs. Thurlow is well pleased 
with the response to her inno- 
vation. She reports that the 
boys have already purchased 

over $800 worth of books rang- 
ing- in price from 35<? to $1.95. 
Books are on sale on Mondays 
only; on other days the racks 
are rolled back to the librarian's 
workroom for replenishment. 

Some titles are included at 
faculty suggestion to meet out- 
side reading requirements ; most 
titles reflect student interests. 
Again we quote Mrs. Thurlow: 

''Alumni, visit us and see for 
yourselves the amazing collec- 
tion of intriguing books, — 
everything from science fiction 
to The Universe and Doctor Ein- 
stein, — from required outside 
reading to the best of beat (On 
the Road) , — from The Decline 
and Fall of Practically Every- 
body to The Devil's Advocate, — 
from Ballantine war books to 
dictionaries, thesauri, and The 
World Almanac." 

Course Enrichments 

College preparation is still 
Governor Dummer Academy's 
primary concern; but less and 
less is that preparation limited 
to drill in textbook subjects or 
confined to what may be learned 
from textbooks only. In a defi- 
nite effort to enrich the student 
background the school arranges 
each year an increasing number 
of off-campus extensions of its 
educational program. 

This year the list has been 
particularly rich. 

On October 20 the first dele- 
gation of Governor Dummer 
students attended a conference 
at Beaver Country Day School 
on the subject of Africa — its 
role in the world today and 
what it is like socially, econom- 
ically, and politically. Africans 
doing graduate work at Har- 
vard and M.I.T. participated. 

On October 23 Mr. Trommald 
took six boys from the Religious 
Discussion Group to the New 
England Secondary School Con- 
ference at Andover, and on No- 
vember 18-19 Mr. Williams took 
four boys to the Northfield Re- 
ligious Conference. 

Five Chemistry students, 
along with Mr. Fenn, went to 
M.I.T. on January 14 to hear 
Professor David Hume speak on 
instrumentation in chemical an- 

On January 22 Mr. Trommald 
took six boys to a Socialist 
Labor Party lecture in Boston 
where Eric Haas, the party's 
presidential candidate for the 
last election, presented the so- 
cialist view on the Cuba prob- 
lem by criticizing the United 
States for being unfair to Cuba. 

Mr. Eames took his Ancient 
History classes to the Museum 
of Fine Arts in Boston on Feb- 
ruary 11 for a guided tour of 
the classical and Near Eastern 

On March 10 nine seniors 
went to Dana Hall with Mr. 
Trommald for a conference on 
African countries and the prob- 
lems and prospects they face 

Mr. Miller took some of his 
Physics students to Portsmouth, 
N. H., on March 8 where Mr. 
Marshall W. Gilchrist, father of 
Bruce '61, arranged for them to 
tour the Schiller Station, a Pub- 
lic Service Co. of N. H. facility 
and the only binary-operated 
power station in the world. 

On April 8 Mr. Fenn took 
over forty of his Chemistry stu- 
dents to the Army Quartermas- 
ter Research and Engineering 
Command at Natick through the 
courtesy of Dr. S. David Bailey, 
father of Larry '61. They were 
given a demonstration of six 
different types of instrumental 
research and were shown some 
of the labs, as well as their 
solar furnace which is one of the 
largest in the world. 

On April 30 Mr. Trommald 
took four boys to Williston for a 
convocation on the Soviet Union. 
Among the outstanding speak- 
ers was Harry Schwartz, spe- 
cialist for the New York Times 
on Soviet affairs. 

Thirteen boys and six faculty 
attended the opera Martha, at 
the Metropolitan Theater in 
Boston on April 23. 

Albie Booth To England 

Alan Booth '61 has been 
awarded an International 
Schoolboy Fellowship for 1961. 
The particular English school 
he will attend has not yet been 
announced; but his friends at 
Governor Dummer, and that in- 

cludes practically the whole stu- 
dent body, faculty, and staff, 
are confident that he will make 
an excellent impression where- 
ever he goes. 

At Governor Dummer Albie 
is a member of the Glee Club 
and of the Senior Council, 
Chairman of the Chapel Com- 
mittee and of the Spring Dance 
Committee. He has won varsity 
letters in football, hockey, and 

Staff Changes 

Miss Elizabeth A. Page, who 
for the past eight years has so 
ably kept the Academy books, 
left us in February to take a 
position as office manager in a 
Lawrence office. Mrs. Herbert 
Rouisse has taken over Miss 
Page's duties. Previously she 
had held a similar post at Bab- 
son Institute but had to give it 
up when her husband was ap- 
pointed Superintendent of the 
elementary schools of nearby 

Mr. Hugh Dakers, who has 
done so much to restore joy to 
the Governor Dummer dining 
room in the past two years, has 
also defected to industry. He 
will leave us in June to join a 
food management firm in the 

Students Contribute 

To Rogers Fund 

During the spring vacation a 
disastrous fire in nearby Byfield 
took the lives of Mr. and Mrs. 
John Rogers and two of the four 
children in the family. Byfield 
friends and organizations quick- 
ly started an emergency fund 
for the survivors and the Acad- 
emy was invited to participate. 

The Chapel Committee an- 
nounced a special collection for 
the purpose at the first chapel 
service in the spring term and 
subsequently voted to supple- 
ment the $45.00 contributed 
then with $55.00 from previous 
contributions. A further $25.00 
came in from faculty, independ- 
ently of the chapel collection, 
so that Mr. Wilkie was able to 
send a total of $125.00 to the 
Rogers Emergency Fund.

Alumni Athletics 

This year there were two 
alumni-varsity games during the 
winter, one in hockey on Satur- 
day, December 10, and one in 
basketball on Saturday, January 

From the varsity point of 
view, the hockey game was noth- 
ing less than a debacle. And no 
one in the wide, wide world can 
be blamed but Coach Athol Mac- 
donald Murphy himself. He had 
coached them in school; he had 
followed their careers in college ; 
and yet he bull-headedly went 
ahead and invited the following 
list of hockey greats to come 
back and gang up on his poor, 
unsuspecting varsity.

Before we draw a kindly cur- 
tain on that unhappy event, let's 
pause only to say that the 
weather was fine, many happy 
reunions took place on the side- 
lines, many alumni have charm- 
ing wives, and the varsity did 
manage to score one lone goal. 

The current students enjoyed 
a bit of revenge when the bas- 
ketball veterans came back to 
face the varsity. The alumni 
fielded a team which included 
for various lengths of time, de- 
pending on their current lung 
capacities, waist lines, and ton- 
nage, Peter Cadigan '57, John 
Canepa '49, Charlie Eddy '59, 

Bud Hadley '56, Ernie Lamb '54, 
Randy Light '59, Rey Moulton 
'56, Will Nalchajian '60, Vin 
Sgarzi '56, and Jim Waugh '44. 
For the first three periods the 
varsity seldom enjoyed a com- 
fortable lead; several times the 
alumni were hard on their heels ; 
once the score was tied; but in 
the last few minutes Coach Wil- 
liams' charges pulled ahead to 
a well-earned 61-54 victory over 
their predecessors. 

Free Advertising 

The Academy recently re- 
ceived a nice bit of publicity as 
a result of the lighting installa- 
tion on the Frost hockey rink. 

A two-page article in Contact, 
the trade publication of the New 
England Electric System, which 
reaches some 25,000 readers, in- 
cluded pictures of the rink and 
of Mr. Wilkie, something of the 
history and nature of the Acad- 
emy, and a full account of the 
new rink and its unusually effec- 
tive lighting. 


Vaughan And Esdaile 

In Orchestra Festival 

Warren Vaughan and James 
Esdaile participated again this 
year in the New England Inde- 
pendent School Orchestra Festi- 
val, held at Dana Hall School in 
Wellesley on April 7 and 8. 

This is the seventh year of 
the Festival, which was found- 
ed to provide an opportunity for 
instrumentalists "to perform 
symphonic literature in a fully 
instrumented orchestra." Audi- 
tions were held last fall, and the 
selected boys and girls came 
from eleven schools to rehearse 
intensively prior to the concert 
on the final evening. 

The 70-piece orchestra was 
directed by Dr. Nathan Gott- 
schalk of the Hartt College of 
Music in New Haven and of the 
Greenwood Music Camp. The 
program included Purcell's 
''Trumpet Tune and Voluntary," 
Couperin-Milhaud's Overture 
and Allegro from "La Sultane 
Suite," Bach's "Brandenburg 
Concerto No. 4," Beethoven's 
"Piano Concerto No. 3 in C 
minor (first movement), 
Piston's "Fanfare for the Fight- 
ing French," Gluck's Overture 
to the Opera "Iphigenia in 
Aulis," and Bizet's "L'Arlesi- 
enne Suite for Orchestra, No. 2." 

Frost Rink Used To Capacity 

By E. Webster Dann 

In its first year of operation 
the Frank J. Frost Memorial 
Rink clearly demonstrated its 
usefulness to the Governor Dum- 
mer family. Guaranteed ice sur- 
face was assuredly the rink's 
most valuable asset, and this 
feature was tested under almost 
every weather condition. Addi- 
tions during the winter of a 
55-foot-long team shelter, a re- 
surfacing machine, electric bell, 
scrapers, new hockey cages, and 
a skate-sharpening machine fur- 
ther increased operating effi- 
ciency, and helped to provide a 
smoother hockey season. 

In almost continuous opera- 
tion from December 7 through 
February 26, the rink was 
shared by Governor Dummer 

hockey teams and students and 
by neighboring groups and 
teams. During the week, from 
2 :45 p. m. to 5 :30 p. m., the first, 
second, and third hockey teams 
used the rink for practices. Be- 
ing able to practice every day 
quickly brought improvement 
and increased enthusiasm in the 
various teams. The first team 
also practiced regularly on Mon- 
day evenings, thus providing a

longer practice for them, and 
a longer practice session for 
each of the sub-varsity teams 
on Monday afternoons. 

Wednesdays and Saturdays 
were game days, and again 
guaranteed ice virtually elimin- 
ated the need for last-minute 
changes because of poor play- 
ing conditions. 

Sunday afternoon was divided 
into three time groups: free 
skating at 2 : 00 p. m., an alumni- 
varsity informal hockey game 
at 3:15 p. m., and finally, in- 
formal hockey for school mem- 
bers below the varsity level. 
Each of these three groups be- 
came increasingly more popular 
and better attended as the sea- 
son progressed. 

Saturday evening was an 
additional free skating period 
for members of the student 
body. This period was extreme- 

ly popular, and provided an op- 
portunity for non-hockey play- 
ers to enjoy two hours of rec- 
reational skating. 

The rink was also used exten- 
sively by groups outside the 
immediate school family. On 
Tuesday and Friday evenings, 
the rink was host to scores of 
elementary-grade children from 
the Newbury schools. Often 
there were as many as 200 chil- 
dren skating, practicing, or gen- 
erally enjoying themselves. The 
many parents watching ap- 
peared to be having an equally 
good time. Several neighboring 
hockey teams, including Haver- 
hill, Melrose, Rowley, and Tops- 
field rented the rink for one- 
hour periods at different times 
during the week. 

On January 28, the Frost 
Rink was the scene of a Junior 
Varsity Round Robin Hockey 
Tournament involving the eight 
teams of the Private School 
League. Five hours and eleven 
games later found Noble and 
Greenough School of Dedham 
the recipient of the Morrison 
Trophy, with the Governors 
placing third. It was an ex- 
tremely exciting afternoon for 
both the players and the many 
parents who were in attendance. 

Dellenbaugh Wins 

Merit Scholarship 

Geoffrey G. Dellenbaugh of 
Gardner has been granted a 
Merit Scholarship for 1961. He 
is one of 850 so honored this 
year and won the award in 
competition with 15,000 high 
school and preparatory 
schools throughout the nation. 
Dellenbaugh's scholarship was 
awarded by Shell Oil Company, 
one of 140 corporations par- 
ticipating in the Merit program. 

Edward J. Stone was the last 
Governor Dummer student to 
attain the honor. At Governor 
Dummer Dellenbaugh is a mem- 
ber of the Radio Club, Religious 
Discussion Group, Glee Club, 
Debating Club, and on the Com- 
mencement Committee. He will 
enter Princeton University in 


Mr. Murphy and Irving Hills would be glad to see you at the Alumni Gymnasium. 

Varsity Sports 

Hockey Looks Up 

The number of candidates for 
varsity hockey did not, fortu- 
nately for other sports, increase 
as sharply as had been antici- 
pated ; but those candidates who 
did appear profited greatly by 
the regular practice which the 
Frost Rink afforded. It may 
take another year or two for 
the Governors to catch up fully 
with rivals who have had sev- 
eral years on artificial ice; but 
Mr. Murphy's skaters can take 
considerable satisfaction in their 
record in 1961. 

The Governors played a total 
of thirteen games, won five, lost 
seven, and tied one. Starting 
rather slowly, they dropped a 
one-sided game to St. Mark's 
and a close one to Brooks be- 
fore they tasted victory in an 
8-2 win over the M.I.T. Fresh- 
men. A three-game winning 
streak in early February clearly 
showed the benefit of regular 
practice sessions. 

Goalwise, they scored thirty 
times to their opponents' thirty- 
five. In spirit and enthusiasm 
they were unexcelled. 

Wrestlers Do It Again 

The wrestlers also got off to 
a somewhat disappointing start, 
— disappointing maybe to 
Coaches Evans and Marr and to 
the victory-glutted veterans on 
the squad, but to no one else. 

The opener was at Andover; 
it was nip and tuck all the way 
and was decided in Andover's 
favor only in the final, unlimited 
match. It was the Governors' 
first loss in 23 dual meets and 
the only loss of the current sea- 
son. And the Governors were 
in good company, for the Ando- 
ver wrestlers also administered 
their only defeats to Phillips 
Exeter and to Needham High, 
longtime standouts in wrestling. 
Andover's only defeat, inciden- 
tally, was by Milton, whom the 
Governors downed later in the 

In a season which included 
victories over St. Mark's, Noble 

and Greenough, Belmont Hill, 
Roxbury Latin, Browne and 
Nichols, and Tabor, as well as 
Milton, the Governor Dummer 
athletes compiled some impres- 
sive personal records. Captain 
Ted Dietz and Bob Taylor were 
undefeated. Steve Sawyer, Brud 
Durfee, Mark Johnson, and 
Dave Graff lost only once. 

Those six and Burke Leahey 
represented the Governors in the 
annual Interscholastics. Steve 
Sawyer took a second in his 
class ; Captain-Elect Durfee a 
third, and Ted Dietz and Bob 
Taylor each took fourth in their 
classes. In team score Governor 
Dummer was sixth out of the 
more than fifty schools compet- 

Bissell High Scorer 
in Basketball 

In clear reversal of the cur- 
rent emphasis on height in bas- 
ketball 5' 9" Fred Bissell led the 
Governors in both field goals 
and free throws during the past 
season. His 75 field goals and 81 
free throws contributed greatly 


to the Governors 9-6 winning 

Fred's average of 15.4 points 
per game was closely followed 
with Bruce Gilchrist with 10.5. 
Dana Steele with 108 rebounds, 
and Captain Tom Woodruff with 
103 set up many scoring plays. 

This overall season record of 
nine wins and seven losses and 
their league record of four wins 
and three losses both give the 
Governors considerable satisfac- 
tion. Despite Bissell's phenome- 
nal record, lack of height was 
definitely a handicap against 
many of their competitors, and 
only fine spirit and great enthu- 
siasm allowed Mr. Williams' 
charges to compile such a sat- 
isfactory record. 

Class B Champs in 
Winter Track 

Highlights of the winter track 
season were the B.A.A. games, 
the Private School meet at An- 
dover, and the final dual meet 
at Tabor. 

In the B.A.A. games the Gov- 
ernors' relay team consisting of 
Captain Ed Kaiser, Denis Gold- 
en, Tom McDonald, and Bill 
O'Brien placed second after 
Huntington and ahead of Moses 
Brown and Deerfield. 

In the Private School meet 
the Governors took five first 
places, 491/0 points, and the 
Class B title. Outstanding were 
Captain Kaiser's 2:26.8 1,000- 
yard run and Tom Wilson's 
4:50.8 mile. 

In the final meet at Tabor 
the Governors took a 39-33 de- 
cision, helped greatly by Tony 
Garland's 5' 7" jump. Weak in 
the dashes, the Governors were 
particularly strong in the hur- 
dles and middle distances. Tom 
Wilson lost out in the mile to 
Tabor's Fawcett, but he and 
Tony Baumann picked up a val- 
uable four points by taking sec- 
ond and third places. 

The relay team went far afield 
during the winter weekend to 
compete at the Interscholastics 
Meet at New York University. 
Running against sixty teams 
from widely scattered schools, 
the Governors broke the school 
record for the second time and 

took tenth place in the meet. 
At the B.A.A. they had run 

the mile in 3 :40.5 ; at New York 
they did it in 3 :40 flat. 

Early Sports 

( Continued from Page 7 ) 

ory serves me we rolled the 
nine greens with the tennis 
court roller — out toward the 
marshes, where sheep pastured 
and kept the grass cut, — and 
tomato cans were used for cups. 

"In envious derision those 
who plaved no golf called it 
The Tomato Can Golf Club. But 
it was fun and taught us all a 
youthful swing that serves me 
to this day in my seventieth year 
of golf begun with my father 
on the old Cambridge Golf Links 
in Watertown, now the Oakleigh 
Country Club. We had tourna- 
ments ; and silver-backed mili- 
tary brushes won as a prize are 
still in use today. Things were 
made to last in those days. 

"Just how we found time for 
golf I find myself wondering 
when I recall the regular sports, 
baseball, basketball, football, 
hockey and lacrosse, not to men- 
tion cross-country runs all over 
and around South Byfield. 

"That also was the year of 
the great disaster when we went 
up to play Exeter and held them 
to on the four-yard line with 
one minute to play. In those days 
of course the goal posts were 
right on the goal line; and as I 
went back to kick out of danger, 
those huge obstacles were too 
clearly in my mind for the kick 
hit the goal posts squarely and 
Greisser Patterson fell on the 
ball behind our goal line for a 
3 to score against us. Still I 
shudder at the thought of those 
goal posts; it was almost as 
bad as running with the ball the 
wrong way of the field as one 
still famous full-back did. 

"Thank Heaven the goal posts 
are now moved back to avoid 
such calamities. Football rules 
have been changed to much ad- 
vantage altho it seems to an old- 
timer that all these helmets and 
visors and other armor should 

eventually be done away with 
and the game made more open 
to give forward passing a more 
important role in an improved 

"This was also the year that 
Russell Atkinson, the son of the 
Mayor of Newburyport, a very 
fine and popular boy, had his 
head twisted in a scrimmage and 
died soon after of a broken neck. 
So we played no more football 
that season but took up lacrosse 
which is a still tougher game, at 
any rate on one's wind.

Buffet Suppers 

Break Routine 

Beginning on Wednesday, 
January 11, school routine has 
been frequently interrupted this 
winter by the substitution of a 
buffet supper for the usual 
school dinner. Frequently on 
Wednesdays, less often on Sun- 
days and Fridays, but always at 
a time when routine begins to 
become boresome, these pleasant 
interludes have delighted the 

Mr. Dakers and his staff have 
prepared a great variety of dish- 
es for these suppers and ar- 
ranged them attractively on 
tables in the service pantry and 
near the pantry in the dining 
room itself. There are always 
several hot dishes, cold cuts, 
salads, and desserts to choose 
from, and most boys usually try 
them all. 

To avoid anyone's having to 
stand in line too long, the boys 
are asked to come to the dining 
room by classes, with the four 
classes taking turns at the head 
of the line. Usually the entire 
school can go through the line 
in about an hour; and so far 
Mr. Dakers has managed not to 
run out of supplies.
